    That's a good one for sure. I hate guessing but I'd assume high 70's.
    Great goat.

    The guide my fiance had says over 80. They put 80% of their WY pronghorn in B&C. Hopefully he makes 82. His bases could have more mass but his prongs are 5 3/4. He's in -5 walk in freezer now to be scored SCI & B&C.

    Beautiful buck, Kimmie! He's got great cutters and good mass up top. I like when the tips come in tight light that.

    What were you shooting and how far was the shot?

    Cheers,
    Rich

    335 yards, 1 shot, blew the heart to pieces, 280 Forbes, about 70 degrees with a 30 mph crosswind. He was in a long wash, we snuck in on the side of it where it got ready to open up. He started running a doe out of it. Gary yelled "Hey!!!" He scrambled around looking, I busted him in the chest. He stumbled and hit the ground. I almost got bit by a rattler on the first trip back to the truck... It was in some sage brush around 3' from me rattling it's behind off. It was a heck of a trip.

    (Don't know why this is in bold. LOL)

    Really nice antelope Kimmie. He looks to be over 80" in the picture.

    Well done on the shot. Congratulations!

    Kimmie, Nice buck!! I have been over to Wyoming hunting antelope twice just outside of Laramie. Those two antelope hunts were some of the funnest and most memorable hunts I have been on. It sounds like yours was a memorable hunt as well. Congrats!!
